Salah is the first African victor of the prize and only the second non-European player to win after former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez. The sponsor is WE, which is a direct conflict with Salah's sponsorship deal with rival telecoms giant Vodafone.

Egypt's Youth and Sports Minister Khaled Abd Elaziz has been trying to resolve the dispute, talking to all concerned parties.

Abdel Aziz said late on Sunday that the association had agreed to meet Salah's demands. He wanted to play more minutes, to mature, he wanted to go and we sent him on loan to Fiorentina, and there he started to mature.

But Barnes believes Salah owes much of his success to the attacking system used by Klopp.

Abdel Aziz wrote a tweet on his account on Sunday saying, "We will be reaching out to all the parties involved to solve the crisis, especially that the national team is now preparing to take part in the World Cup".

Salah won PFA Players' Player of the Year and was also named in the team of the season after a remarkable first campaign on Merseyside since joining from Roma in the summer for £39million.

Salah would also spearhead the Egypt team to the world cup in Russian and drawn with the hosts, Saudi Arabia and Uruguay in Group A.

The association confirmed Abdel-Aziz's assertion that a resolution has been reached.

Leading from the front with his Brazilian flair and unmatched work rate, it is easy to see why Jurgen Klopp so often lavishes praise upon Roberto Firmino as someone who his teammates should look up to.

'To be the best in the world you need to do that over a longer period, I think.

Ramy Abbas, Salah's agent, was quoted by ESPNFC as saying he has been waiting for a response from Egyptian officials.

Firmino's brace last Tuesday helped Liverpool take one step closer to the Champions League final following their 5-2 win over AS Roma, with the Merseysiders taking to Italy this week with the hope of booking their spot in Kiev. With more than 40 goals this season, Salah has captivated the soccer insane nation of about 100 million people. "Especially since Egypt is going to participate in the 2018 World Cup", Elaziz tweeted hours after Salah's. "He has good team-mates, they love helping him and they love how they help him". To most Egyptians, he brings them happiness and pride at a time of great economic difficulties.
